I was tagged by Stephanie from Adventures of a Bibliophile to do the 3 Days 3 Quotes tag/challenge/meme/thing! As you can see already, I don’t much have a way with words so let’s move onto the entire point of this challenge which is to post a book or reading related quote every day for three days, tagging three people at the end of each day’s post.
Of course because this is me, I’m going to unpack the quote a little bit each day, explaining why I chose it, and also perhaps musing a little on the concept of reading that it addresses (I might have also accidentally added a couple of supplementary or supporting quotes, whoops!). But, without further ado…
“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.”
